GYPSIES Girl of Sixteen, With a Mys tery, Living With Far mers in Virginia. HER RIME IS BECKY Some Reason to Think That She Belongs in New Jersey —Her Broken Recol lections A letter addressed to the Superintend ent of Police at Jersey City was received by Inspector Archibald at Police Head quarters this morning from Alfred B. Williams, president of the liirhniomi “Xews.” In the letter he enclosed a clipping from a Biehnunul, Va., paper, which tells a strange story of the dis covery of a sixteen year old girl who was stolen front her parents at an early age. Mr. Williams asked that the Jersey City police endeavor to ascertain whether or uot there is any family in tell neigh borhood of Jersey City who have lost a daughter. The girl has light brown hair and hazel eyes. Site is slender and live feet three indies tall. She made the following statement:— “I remember my brother calling me Becky, but I cannot remember my last name. I was very small at the time and was playing in the road in front of my home when a woman came along in a wagon and picked me tip. Then she whipped up the horse and drove away. She treated me cruelly after we had reached canto, so I ran away to another camp and was taken care of by M.iry Stanley. “I seem to recollect a large white house with a porch and a fence around the front yard. The house was in a woods, but I think there was a town not far away. I had a brother almost grown, who used to bring home pieces of slate at night for the small children to play with. •'My father was a large man and came home at night with very dirty clothes on and washed up for supper. Then in the morning he went away again with the dirty clothes on. We had horses and cows.” The girl was found by one of the mem bers of the firm of C. R. Boatwright & Son of Karmersville, Vn., at the home of J. L. Webber of Pamlins, about twen ty miles from Karmersville. She was left with the Webber family on Decem ber 1, 1901, by Mary Stanley and Jim Gavel, two gypsies, who had quarreled over buying shoes for the child. To de cide the quarrel the child was left a the Webber home and has been well taken care of ever since. The child remembered the names of the gypsies and described them as being: The woman of dark complexion with wavy black hair and the man of Irish descent with red or sandy hair. These were the people who took her after she had runaway from the woman who stole her. The girl also said, that the place which she had lived in was in a colder climate •where there was much more snow than In Vidginia. Every springtime there is a large clan of English gypsies which meets at a place near Elizabeth, X. J., and holds a convention before the several members Start out on their tours. The clan name is Stanley and the name of the woman who left the child at the Webber home being also Stanley, it. is thought that probably the'child was stolen from some place near Elizabeth.

GUSTAVE’S LITTLE GUN Sixteen Year Old Boy Aims at Oue Comrade and Shoots Another. THE DIME NOVEL FEVER Narrow Escape of the In jured Lad—Weird Stories of Indian Capers Augustus Daggin. sixteen years old, living on the top Hour of a five-story tenement house at the corner of Grove and Fifteenth, streets,, seeking revenge, tried to shoot a boy named Thomas Burns last Saturday afternoon. The bul let, which was from a 22-calibre Flan ked rifle, missed Burns and hit Joseph Connolly, the fourteen-year-old son of Patrick Connolly, of No. <118 Grove street, behind the right ear. It found its woy into the soft tissues under the scalp almost two inches, and was not extract ed until five hours had elapsed. Mr. Connolly learned that Daggin fired the rifle, but he has refused to have him arrested. The Burns boy’s father hasn't made any charge against Daggin either. From all appearances, nothing will be done with him. To a reporter for “The News” Con nolly’s father said to-day:— “I sent my boy. Joe, to get some meat for our house cat. On the way to a store he met Tom Burns, a playmate. They were crossing Fifteenth street, near Grove, when my boy felt a stinging sen sation behind his ear. He thought he had been struck with a stone. He came home and the blood was flowing freely. We tried to stop it but could not until the wound was covered over with plaster. Five hours later, the boy complained of pains in his head and I decided to send him to the drug store. Dr. Enright was at the drug store and when he looked at the wound he said:—‘Why the boy has been shot.’ “It was so, and the doctor extracted a 22-calibre rifle bullet that had gone into the scalp almost two inches. The boy felt relieved after the extraction of the bullet, and he is apparently all right to day. He escaped luckily, though. If we hadn’t sent him to the drug store, we can’t tell but what he might have died.” When asked if he knew how the boy came to be shot, Mr. Connolly said:— “The shot was fired by a boy named Oils. Daggin. who lives on the top floor of a house at the corner of Fifteenth and Grove streets. The Burns boy complain ed to his father about Daggin hitting him. Mr. Burns was thinking about hav ing Daggin arrested. Daggin told one of his chums yesterday that he didn't mean to hit my boy, but wanted to get even with Tom Burns. I understand Daggin is not of very sound mind.” Mr. Connolly said also that he heard the loss of Daggin’s mother a few years ago has affected the boy’s mind. Daggin was in hiding this morning and coijld not be found. He was arrested Saturday shortly af ter the shooting and taken to the Seventh street police station. Young Connolly’s father refused to make a complaint against the boy and he was not locked up. At the Seventh street police station Daggin denied having shot Connolly. A hifle, however, was found in his home af ter a long search and the bullet taken from Connolly’s head fited it exactly. The police say there is no doubt about him having done the shooting. A few days ago the police were asked to watch Daggin. People living in the same house with him say he tied a small boy to the fence in the rear of a yard a day or two ago and began shooting bullets from a WHO WOULDN’T BE AN ARCTIC EXPLORER IN THIS WEATHER! -Washington Star. revolver ftl the fence around the little £ol linv'n heiul while lie screamed in terror, j Another time, according to statements ! made by llnfegin’s playmates, he tied a small girl to the stairs in his house ami threw knives around her like tire man in the museum. Neighbors say that Daggin’s head has been turned from reading dime novels. He purchased this trashy reading from a store on Fifteenth street.
